Q?

What is the Flight Fitness Covid-19 Policy?

At Flight Fitness we will be making several changes in order to respond to the Covid-19 crisis. Please refer the following page for full details http://www.flightfitness.co.uk/covid-19-policy

Q?

What should I wear to pole dancing classes?

A.

Pole Fitness does require a degree of skin contact so you can grip the pole, long shorts are great for this or leggings you can easily roll up over the knee. For more advanced classes you will need to grip the pole with your arms, sides and thighs – so smaller shorts, strappy tops, sports bras and other fitness gear would be suitable. Please speak to your instructor if you are not sure.

High heels are welcome if you want to wear them, or not, it's completely up to you! We also run high heel specific classes – check our timetable for more information.

Also, please bring a sense of humour and an open mind – be prepared to have fun, meet new people and make new friends - what could be better!

Q?

What should I not wear to pole dancing classes?

A.

Please don't apply moisturiser, lotion, suncream, oil, fake tan or any other kind of skin cream to your body at least 12 hours before attending pole dancing classes. This is extremely important as it can transfer to the pole making it very dangerous both for you and others who are sharing the pole with you. Slippery poles are dangerous poles!

Please remove all watches, bracelets and rings before using the pole for health and safety reasons.

Q?

What is Aerial Hoop?

A.

Aerial hoop (also known as lyra or cerceau) is a steel ring suspended from the ceiling by secure rigging. It's usually wrapped in grip tape and you can perform amazing acrobatics on it!

We will start with a thorough warm up and complete the lesson with a cool down. During a lesson we will cover how to approach the hoop, the different poses and transitions you can do inside the hoop and how the hoop can help to condition and tone your body.

Q?

What do I wear to Aerial Hoop classes?

A.

Aerial hoop doesn't require any skin contact and it's preferable to stay covered up. It's suggested to wear several layers of clothing but keep them form fitting so they don’t get caught on the hoop or silks. Leggings, leotards, strappy tops etc. are all suitable choices, but if you're not sure please ask your instructor.

Please also remove all watches, bracelets, ring and necklaces before class to avoid getting them caught on the aerial equipment.

Q?

Do I need to bring anything with me to a class?

A.

All you need is the appropriate clothing (there are changing rooms on site) and a bottle of water to rehydrate yourself. You can also buy water or other drinks from Flight Fitness if you want them, please ask your instructor.

Q?

Do I need to get fitter or lose weight before I start pole dancing or aerial hoop classes?

A.

Believe it when we say one of the best ways to tone up and get fitter is to try pole dancing or aerial arts! You will not believe the amount of overall body strength and confidence you will develop by attending classes regularly! We celebrate what people's bodies can do rather than what they look like - we don't take measurements, we don't weigh people and we definitely don't put people on the treadmill endlessly. We help people to surprise themselves with their own abilities by learning lifelong skills on their chosen apparatus. People often say their confidence sky rockets when they join us and we encourage people to develop their individuality with us. The great thing about all the activities we offer here is that different people move in different ways and we love celebrating that.

Everyone can enjoy pole dance or aerial arts and the instructors have taught people from all ages, all backgrounds and all walks of life. Anyone can do the activities we offer at Flight Fitness and all we want is for people to be safe, be strong, be themselves and enjoy what they do. You are never too old to enjoy pole dancing - if you don't believe us, check out this link – Sydney's pole dancing Grandmother!

Q?

Will everyone be better than me?

A.

No, everybody progresses at their own pace and your instructor will cater for this. Remember that everyone starts somewhere!

Q?

I’m very nervous about coming to my first class, can I come and watch before to see what it’s like?

A.

Unfortunately not, we don't allow spectators in the group classes for the comfort and safety of the other participants. Unfortunately we don't hold taster classes as we are so busy but we do offer a lot of pay as you go classes most nights of the week. Booking a pay as you go class means there is no obligation to continue if you don't like it. Private lessons are also an option and a lot of people find that this is a great way to try out their chosen art form without committing to a course or being in a group. All of our instructors are supportive, encouraging, and will guide you through the steps needed to get to grips with your chosen activity. Click here to explore the different options.

Q?

My friends can’t attend any more, can I come by myself?

A.

Of course! We encourage a friendly atmosphere and it's great to meet new people who have similar interests to you. Don't be nervous – we are all friendly!

Q?

What happens if I can’t come to a class?

A.

Please let us know as soon as possible via text, phone or email. If you have booked onto a course and are giving less than 24 hours notice you will lose your class fee.

Regular non attendees of classes run the risk of forfeiting future classes at Flight Fitness.

Q?

Can my children attend classes at Flight Fitness?

A.

Yes, but they have to be over 16 to attend pole fitness classes and exercise classes. All other classes are open to children over 5 years old but please contact us at least 24 hours before the class starts to book in.
